No anxiety, here!  LOL 

Another suggestion that I completely forgot about was turning off the flaming NEWS.  I've heard a number of counselors (older, and wiser ones) discuss the anxiety that listening to the news (and, weather) is inducing in client/patients. 

There was a time when local and national news was on television twice, daily.  With the advent of cable and satellite television networks, news and weather events became a 24/7 endeavor to sell advertising, etc.  Well, all of the "news" that is broadcasted are events that we, as individuals, can do nothing about, yet these broadcasts create a terrible source of anxiety - same goes forth with weather events.  It's going to snow in January?  GET TO THE STORE, NOW.  I actually saw a weather broadcast that said, "Prepare, now, for this new winter storm...."  And, the feet of snow predicted amounted to a normal couple of inches. 

Social networking is also creating an extreme form of anxiety that is afflicting teenagers.

There are things that we "can" do to get a grasp on anxiety.  And, most of them don't involve any financial expense or trips to the doctor.
